Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is the new speaker of the House, but the name of the San Francisco liberal was rarely uttered at the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual gathering held south of Washington, D.C. Demonized for much of the 2018 political season in Republican ads and presidential tweets, she had been, it seemed, entirely forgotten.
Former archrival Hillary Clinton came in for a couple of predictable jabs, as when Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch, the conservative activist group, promised “more accountability” from the former secretary of state. But such calls weren’t followed up by the “lock-her-up” chants of yore.

Instead, by far the greatest animosity — and anxiety — was reserved for Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., the 29-year-old House newcomer who has single-handedly pushed the agenda of the Democratic Party to the left. As much as Republicans oppose her agenda — the “Green New Deal,” a 70 percent tax rate on the wealthy — they thrill at the prospect of using her to broadly paint the Democrats challenging President Trump in 2020 as like-minded socialists.

“The moment America becomes a socialist country is the moment America ceases to be America,” Vice President Mike Pence said on the convention’s second day.
Pence did not mention Ocasio-Cortez by name, but he didn’t have to: She was everywhere at CPAC, so much so that the entirety of the five-day affair could have been dedicated to her. The event officially opened on Thursday with a panel title “Marketing Marxism: There’s Nothing New About the Green New Deal.” But there was little serious debate of the proposal, which was recently introduced by Ocasio-Cortez, and which would transition the nation to a carbon-free economy under government control.

“They’re trying to get rid of all the cows,” said Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., referencing a comment by Ocasio-Cortez about bovine flatulence, which does in fact contribute to the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, thus exacerbating the warming of the planet. The cow comment proved popular at CPAC.

Agreed, she is to the Republicans what Sarah Palin was to the Democrats.

It's not just Republicans that hate her. Centrist Dems and the #stillwither crowd hate her too. Personally I love her. I think she's the best thing to happen to politics in ages.

No. Palin wasn't even fucking close to AOC in demeanor or intelligence.
Palin was a complete ditz who orally stumbled, barfing up up republican buzz themes at the drop of a hat. She arguably cost McCain the election.

AOC was the ONLY person at the Cohen hearing to ask anything worth a damn and get real answers further incriminating Indy 1.



Piss off Ivanka



Know why the right is shitting nickels over her? She does the small things, the grunt work no one else seems to want to do, in other words she does her job better than 99% of the other idiots there in either party.

The analogy between Palin & AOC is not that they are similar characters. It is that their political opponents are trying to use their existence to motivate. Also, Palin likely cost McCain votes. Highly doubtful she cost him the election.

1st part - I agree with that view point.

2nd part - Imo centralist moderates were not going to vote for Palin, but overall, you are probably correct, I had forgotten it was a 7% spread.

^^^ Flac,

Great post on her excellent pin-point questioning of Cohen during the hearing last week. She gets straight to the point and lays the foundation for asset inflation and tax fraud. She doesn't play and she is the future that Repugs and Magats fear....strong, intelligent, and determined individuals who give a damn about proper oversight and working for struggling folk living paycheck to paycheck just trying to keep their heads above water.....

I like her very much and her line of questioning last week was just spot on! Wish she was my Congress Rep!

To the tune by Naughty By Nature: "You down with AOC?!!! Yeah, you know ME!!!"

^ x7 Ivanka Trump: "People want to work for what they get"

I've heard Americans believe if they have something, it's not because they've been fortunate in life, it's because they've personally worked for it. So does that mean someone who's born into a billion dollar empire actually believe they have what they do because they've personally worked for it?

The pressure is intense. But beneath the caricatures, she says, “I’m not a superhero. I’m not a villain.”

Are there any Republican women in Congress that are as strong and powerful than Nancy Pelosi and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

*crickets*

I thought so.

^Here's the thing; in the slanguage in hip-hop, when someone says "Imma problem" it's a boast or self-compliment. IOW, "I annoy my haters", so that was my thinking with the original title.

But I see how it could be misconstrued.

One of her biggest strengths is her ability to put things in their proper perspective.

And that moment from the other tweet, where she was meeting with constituents? When she told her heckler, "Our fight shouldn't be here" (gestures to heckler then back to herself) "Our fight should be here!" (gestures down low, then up high) - that was a moment of brilliance.

2024. She can run if she wants to. You only have to be 35 by the time you are sworn in.

Edit:
And no, I don't think Warren or Harris will take the nomination this cycle.

I'm not saying anything's going to happen to her. I'm talking about Jemele Hill's statement. If one can combine two (seemingly) disparate entities, like she says, working class and the poor, that's a threat to the system.

Oh I completely got what you were saying and it is completely accurate. Shes smart, extremely attractive and yet is not resting on that.
Look at her record. She goes to all the little meetings and minutia that almost everyone else blows off.
If anything she's becoming more dangerous to the insiders because she's learning everything they aren't.


That said, we are talking about unstable, right wing fanatics with guns.......
